Today on PBT Extra the amazing Kay Adams and myself are taking a look at the first round of the NBA playoffs. This is your Western Conference preview (the East can be found right here).
Out West there’s a lot of people in Los Angeles who think the Lakers have a shot against the Spurs, but that’s only the case if the Spurs are really banged up. The Thunder and Rockets are going to be an entertaining series, but that’s a bad matchup for the Rockets, getting out and running against the athletic Thunder.
The Nuggets vs. Warriors is going to be the most entertaining first round series in either conference, but the Nuggets have too much. Then we get to the single best first round series — Clippers vs. Grizzlies. Last year the Clippers won Game 7 in Memphis, this year I think the Grizzlies return the favor.
- Bulls have no answer for Nene as Wizards take Game 1 0
- Charlotte is scrappy but Heat have too much in comfortable 99-88 win 9
- Spurs use huge 4th quarter run to come back and win Game 1 vs. Mavericks 8
- NBA issues statement saying Chris Paul was fouled before late-game turnover against Warriors 17
- Jim Buss says he’ll step down if Lakers aren’t contenders again in ‘three to four years’ 41
